SECOORA is honored to announce the 2021 Vembu Subramanian Ocean Scholars - Lela Schlenker, East Carolina University, and Caroline Maria Tribble, University of Charleston. The annual award provides travel support to students to present their research at a meeting or conference.
NOAA released a new operational rip current model that will improve beach safety through sophisticated rip current forecasts. NOAA plans to validate the model using shoreline footage from SECOORA’s Webcams for Coastal Observations and Operational Support (WebCOOS) network.
SECOORA is soliciting proposals to develop online or online accessible K-12 marine science curricula and/or activities that can be implemented by parents, teachers, and other educators. Proposals must demonstrate how they will increase participation of underrepresented communities in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics educational activities.

In March 2021, USF COMPS headed to sea on the R/V Weatherbird to replace the C10 buoy off the coast of Sarasota, Florida. This buoy provides real time data on water velocity, wind speed, air temperature, water temperature, salinity, and more.
SECOORA collaborated with the FACT Network to install new acoustic receivers on buoys in North Carolina and West Florida. This is helping build bridges between oceanography and acoustic telemetry researchers to expand marine animal observations in the Southeast.
